Fantastic Book! I really enjoyed reading this book, for it explained politics in a simple, easy to understand, fun way. I especially liked the pages with all the arrows where it told you if you were socialist or capitalist etc. This book is perfect for my History class, as we have to study the Cold War, and the Rise of Hitler. Politics plays a big part in these topics, but I never understand how it all worked, but now, I actually do! I definitely recommend to any History student, old or young, as well as anybody interested in Politics or how the world works.

Brilliant!

This is a great introduction to politics for children. I read this with my 7 year old and she was happy just dipping in and out of different chapters. As she gets older I am sure it will be a great springboard for her/us to do further/deeper research. It covers so many aspects of politics on a historical, local, national and international level so it can't go into great depth in any particular area. However the overview is sufficiently detailed to engage the reader, and the layout/design/pictures are all excellent (and very humorous at times). There are tons of learning opportunities, and questions posed throughout the book, to make the reader really consider their perceptions. It also doesn't shy away from the more difficult aspects of modern day politics, such as the threat of terrorism. It is never too early to get children interested in politics and this book provides the ideal start. For further study, we look forward to trying out some of the Usborne Quicklinks referenced at the back of the book!

Before I started reading this book I wasn't too sure about it, because I don't really know anything about politics. As I started reading I was amazed at how interesting it is and I really like it.  There are loads of fascinating facts and pictures in it.  This book tells you what a democracy is and how it works,  who is in charge of the country, what politics are, and what a government is. I didn't know about any of these things, but now I do!

Madeleine received this book and set about reading it straight away, it made her feel very grown up as she felt it was a grown up topic. She particularly enjoyed the more history of politics books and she enjoyed looking at the illustrations. At the end of each chapter she requested me to test her knowledge so this might be something the author could consider in the future

This book is very descriptive about all types of politics from old to new. types of politicis from the UK and other countries. It is easy to look through and very appealing to the eye. I learnt about different terminology and political techniques.  It's layout is easy to follow and you don't have to read it from start to finish.
